Chicago is amazing for providing so many options for water fun for kids in the summer all throughout the city. From public pools, beaches, waterparks, and private pools all opening up in a couple of weeks your kids are going to need some stylish suits to hit the water with. Being a mom and having my kids change their minds every week options are key in my family and making everyone happy. I have included some of the best swimsuits, trunk, rash guards, and gear to make your kids the coolest in the hot summer months.

I love everything about Gap! From basics to cute fun seasonal pieces Gap is a brand I continue to go back time and time again. The swim pieces at Gap have a great fit and always have a really soft fabric that doesn’t irritate my kids skin.

This fun suit I got for my daughter this summer. It is made from recycled materials but doesn’t loose style with a colorful tie dye print and bright pink color (Ava’s FAVORITE!).

The pool or beach are the runway for the summer fashion so my kids need a swimsuit that is just right to each of their own styles. I try to make my kids feel individual and unique and all of these swimsuit options are great for your children to find that perfect suit to enjoy summer in.

On a beach or pool day there are so many items that you need to grab from sunscreen, snacks, water toys, and so many more that I hope this list of swimsuits take one less item off the list!
